We're not sure whether to be shocked by the fact that St. Martinville Senior High School's Class of 1973 has been holding segregated class reunions since 1973.
Or that they just realized the racist practice is unacceptable in 2012 yet managed to offend black graduates.
"This year, 2012, was going to be the first year that we were going to integrate it," Liz Chance, one of the organizers of the event at the Louisiana school, told katc.com
But someone messed up and a printed invitation from a previous year was mailed out.
It says that on Sept. 21, a reception will be held at the school, followed by the homecoming football game - which the letter notes all graduates are welcome to attend.
It also includes this line: "After Game Get Together: White Graduates Only."
Chance couldn't explain what happened.
"And this is just a start, it's a beginning, it needs to go forward," she is quoted as saying on the station's website. "I don't understand why this went the way it did."
The school's principal Michael Kreamer, we're informed, wasn't happy with the news.
"I'm just a little disappointed that something like this comes up. I don't think that it looks good for the school, but again as I said it has nothing to do with St. Martinville Senior High," Kreamer told KATC. "So I hope people don't take that the wrong way."
